BlackVoices, a blog I’ve recently come across, has a pretty fascinating look at a group of senior citizens in China who’ve developed a taste for hip hop dance.
Here’s what they have to say:
“Wu then had a vision that she and a bunch of other older ladies would get together and form a hip-hop dance troupe. Wu not only taught the moves, but encouraged all the participants to get down with the freeing attitude at the heart of all the best of hip-hop. Now, with the youngest member aged 45, these 30-odd rap-dancing retirees have performed all over China and collected dozens of awards shaking their booties to the beats and baselines of hip-hop.” Check out the rest of the article here for a solid look at the whole scene.
